Since the crackdown on street vendors selling vials of "authentic" Picasso blood, it's been harder than ever to get close to famous artists. Go under the influence of genuine masterpieces with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get admission for four people (up to a $24 value for adults), plus four collection catalogs (a $24 value), at the Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, located in downtown Memphis (up to a $48 total value). All four admissions must be used on the same visit, so gather the family or take your art-loving pals on a double date.

Founded by Jack Belz (chairman and CEO of Belz Enterprises and Marilyn Belz, the Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art has displayed its collection of paintings, sculptures, textiles, and more from Asian and Judaic artisans since 1998, when it was originally called the Peabody Place Museum. Old-school art lovers can spend hours perusing Belz's collection of pieces from the Chinese Qing and other dynasties, including a 19th-century scene intricately carved in ivory tusk, or studying elaborate pottery from the Han dynasty. In addition to the four admissions, the deal also includes four collection catalogs ($6 each), so exhibition scrutinizers can study up on the museum's collections.

The museum's selection of historical and modern Judaic art features some of Israel's most sought-after artists, including Ofra Friedland and Daniel Kafri. Thirty-two evocative bronze-relief sculptures display Kafri's attempts to illustrate the Bible, and Reuven Rubin's "Musicians of Safed" depicts a breathtaking slice of musical tradition. Art dabblers may consider reviving their Ghost Cat painting series as they check out the fresh new talent of local students on display in the "Year of the Tiger 2010" exhibit.

This Groupon is not valid for special after-hour events.

Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art

When Jack and Marilyn Belz first stepped into a Los Angeles art gallery in 1968, it was their first step into a lifelong passion for Chinese art. Over the years, their collection grew so much that in 1998, they opened a museum that featured their expansive collection. According to the couple, "the intricate creations of Chinese artists rank among the most inspiring" to them. Visitors to the museum today find not only Chinese artwork from eras past, but also modern Judaica art. 

  • Size: The Chinese collection ranges from 202 B.C. to early 2008 and encompasses more than 1,400 individual objects such as paintings, carved jades, textiles, and sculptures. 
  • Eye Catcher: An ornate and intricate wedding carriage carved completely from jade, including the horse.
  • Permanent Mainstay: According to staff, the museum holds the largest displayed collection by renowned Judaica artist Daniel Kafri, including 32 bronze relief sculptures illustrating biblical scenes.
  • Don't Miss: a rare carved mammoth tusk from the late 18th century
  • Newest Exhibit: The Holocaust Memorial Gallery honors survivors, refugees, and liberators who live in Tennessee with displays of their personal stories and artifacts from that time.
  • Special Programs: The Emperor's Lunch program includes a guided tour of the museum followed by a Chinese box lunch.

Customer Reviews

What a hidden gem in the heart of downtown Memphis! While the setting is a bit unconventional (in the basement of an office building), the amazing and extensive collections are thoughtfully grouped and displayed with accompanying descriptions. There are benches for resting and contemplating located throughout the various galleries. Thank you Mr. Belz for sharing your beautiful collection with us!

Very interesting museum of absolutely breathtakingly beautiful of both Asian and Judaic art, plus a room of Holocaust artifacts, pictures and articles.

This was an unexpected gem on our most recent trip to Memphis. A family friend recommended it and we found a way to squeeze it into a tight schedule. It helped that Sunday brunch was very close by. We loved both the Judaic art (which had been the primary draw) and the Asian art. A few items from the museum were featured in a case in the lobby of the Peabody Hotel, making it all the more "beshert" that we planned to go. The range of art in both areas was magnificent. I also found the Holocaust gallery very moving. I had not been aware of the community of survivors in the Memphis area. Their stories were quite touching.
